Darjeeling Margarets Hope TGFOP-1
Margarets Hope is a world famous name when it comes to Darjeeling Tea. The bushes at Margaret’s Hope are almost entirely the Chinese Jat (genus) accounting for the green leafed tippy appearance of the manufactured leaf and the superb fragrance. Because the tea is grown at such high altitudes and in relatively cool weather the bushes do not grow quickly, and as such the production is limited.
The best time of the year for quality is during ‘second-flush’ (end May - end June). During this time Darjeelings are incomparable to any other tea in the world. The fragrance and taste is a complex bouquet that reaches right out of the cup.
This Margarets Hope TGFOP-1 is a top leaves of autumn harvested tea. It is somewhat stronger than many other Darjeeling teas but still soft and round, with almost no bitterness. Some would describe the taste as nutty; others find it reminds them of black currants, but most often it is described as similar to the taste and fragrance of muscat grapes
